As long as you keep it running cool, it performs like no other.


Sound quality is superior. All the surround sound formats you will ever need. Classy modest look to the front. You can adjust the level of every single channel individually to overcome acustic differences in your room. Plenty of different input/output

If the AVR-320 gets too hot, you can lose some functions

My one has problem.


I bought one in my local electronic store FRYs in thank giving, I love its feature and the sound quality. Unfortunitly, the receiver very often turn itself off while it is playing CD or DVD. SO I return the receiver to the store.

Should have bought something else


Bought this receiver for $500 about six months ago. After two months of use, the power transformer went bad. Took it in for repair and waited for a month to get it back. No other problems since. Logic 7 is awesome, but that's about the only great...

Super value - Discontinued?


I bought this unit several weeks ago and have been very pleased. Great sound for work in progress home theater set-up. Apparently this unit is being replaced by HK with AVR325. There is still no mention of this on HK web site but the product was...

Perfect A/V Receiver for Small to Mid Size HT


Spent two weeks poring over specs, reviews, user opinions and visting audio stores. Conclusion: HK and high current are the way to go! I don't know what the offical definition of an audiophile is, but I consider myself to have an 'educated' ear. This...

Excellent for my purposes


A few days ago I replaced my tried and true, but tired, Onkyo TX515-Pro running 5 DCM speakers (the DCM Timeframe 600 mains and "monitor" center and rears). This equipment was all circa 1993. They sounded good, but the receiver was limited to Dolby PL...
